Public Lands Official Says Shut Down Not Hampering Grazers

 

The government shut down is having an impact on several areas and agencies. Public Lands Council Executive Director Dustin Van Liew says while the gridlock they’ve normally seen in Congress causes delays in moving legislation, the shut down has brought it totally to a halt.

Van Liew says the shut down has not stopped landowners from grazing on federal lands as long as they’re operating within their permits but is has hampered communications between them and federal officials. He says landowners can contact their office at the Public Lands Council for help if need be.
